This chapter focuses on Oxford's best friends. These include Henry Howard, Oxford's elder by ten years, was born on 25 February 1540, the second son of Lady Frances Vere (Oxford's aunt) and of Henry Howard, eldest son of the 3rd Duke of Norfolk. The second of Oxford's companions was Charles Arundel. His mother was Margaret Howard, sister to the tragic Catherine, whereby Charles would claim cousinship with Queen Elizabeth, Henry Howard, Oxford, Sussex, Edward Stafford (English ambassador to France 1583–90), and Anne Vavasor. The third of Oxford's close friends is more elusive, but evidence suggests that it was Francis Southwell, one of the sons of Sir Robert Southwell, Master of the Rolls under Edward VI.
